Steel doors offer better security and strength, making them perfect for high-risk areas. It is important to consider the pros and cons of each material based on your budget, area, and security needs.

Consider Security Features: According to ADT "Your front door can be the first defense against would-be burglars gaining access to your home." Look for doors with good

frames, multiple locking options, and quality hardware. Reinforced glass or panels can also help security while adding style. Customers should look for doors that meet or exceed industry standards for impact resistance and forced entry protection.

Look at doors with windows or decorative glass panels that can also add both beauty and natural

light into your space.

Consider Size: Measure the size of your current door accurately to ensure a good fit. According to The Spruce "It’s always a good idea to do some measurements, instead of just assuming that the standard front door size will work." Consider the layout of the door, such as single or double doors, with or without sidelights. Also consider the swing direction based on the space available.
